Introduction to building offline applications
You can use the ArcGIS Maps SDKs for Native Apps to build offline applications. Offline applications run natively on phones, tablets, laptops, or desktop computers, and work where network connectivity is unreliable or unavailable. The data for offline applications can be packaged using desktop tools or online data management tools, and then accessed in ArcGIS or sideloaded to the device. You can build many different types of applications to display interactive maps and scenes and perform operations such as geocoding, routing, navigation, editing, and spatial analysis. To learn how to build these applications, go to the Topics below.
